At that moment, a fleet of alien warships arrives to threaten Earth and Superman attempts to stop them, but cannot penetrate the alien shields. Just as he is about to give up, the stranger inspires Superman to keep fighting, saying that his strength comes from the people he protects. Superman slams through the shields and is about to confront the alien threat, but everything is surrounded by the darkness. Then, it is revealed that all the events happened in some sort of virtual reality and Superman is not Superman at all: he is Eli Carter, the world's foremost authority on Superman.
